GLENN: Let me go to Basil Marceaux.

STU: Dotcom.

GLENN: Basil Marceaux. Basil, how are you sir?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Fine, Glenn. I watch you all the time on your news broadcast on FOX.

(APPLAUSE.)

GLENN: Down, boys.

BASIL MARCEAUX: I watched you last night. You're trying to separate the difference between republic and democracy there. That was pretty good, except you missed one thing.

PAT: What did he miss?

BASIL MARCEAUX: We take an oath to republic our democracy. So, we have to (inaudible) so, we have to kick them out and we actually say the (inaudible.)

PAT: Good point.

GLENN: Basil, let me ask you. There are a lot of people and I think there are some within arm's length currently that would question whether or not you're a serious candidate.

PAT: We're so serious about Basil, we believe that let's just get this one out of the way, first of all.

GLENN: Boys.

PAT: Shouldn't we?

STU: Sure, yeah.

PAT: Because I think there's some concern I don't think you can tell us, can you, Basil, that -- hasn't it been suggested that maybe you shouldn't run for President already? Has it been suggested?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Well, they want me to run for governor in California. I have a guy in West Virginia that wants to give me all his property so I can run for Virginia in West Virginia because up there all you have to do is own property to vote.

PAT: There's a ground swell. A grass roots ground swell.

BASIL MARCEAUX: There's a website out there that says Marceaux and Palin in 2012.

PAT: That's what I suggested. So, I guess we've got to get this out of the way first. Now, if elected governor of Tennessee, I mean, will you serve for, like, a year and then start running for President of the United States?

STU: Is this just a spring board for your national aspirations?

BASIL MARCEAUX: It takes a lot of signatures to become a candidate for President. If I get enough support from everyone out there to get me signatures, I'll give it a shot because I don't think anyone else is going to have guts to fix the country the way I want to fix it, where we all say a pledge to the republic and we actually mean it and we fly the real Betsy Ross flag.

STU: The gold fringe one.

BASIL MARCEAUX: I think it was Roosevelt who said you cannot desecrate our quarries. If we desecrate our quarries, then I say we might as well shoot the eagle.

STU: Yeah. That's a really good point.

PAT: It's a lot like Davy Crockett said when he said the declare naked quote.

GLENN: Basil?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Yes.

GLENN: You wear a badge around your neck. Were you a police officer or a sheriff -- what is that badge that you wear around your neck?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Okay. In fact, I'm the only one in the United States who wears it. Several years ago, as a matter of fact, I started my year, the same year you started your radio show, 2001, when a law enforcement officer put a gun to my face at a stop sign and pulled my friends out of the car and kicked the crap out of him. He was a Navy Seal like Rambo. I'm sure Rambo wouldn't have liked that much. So, I told the officer then that I was going to look for a law that allowed a marine to arrest anyone who breaks the Constitution. After three years and six months, I found Federal Law 241, the emancipation proclamation proclamation, the Civil Rights Act of 1866, and the (inaudible.)

PAT: And this is why you're going to ban all traffic stops, right?

BASIL MARCEAUX: No. Actually the traffic stops itself is the second part, where you get out of the car, what are you doing in this part of town, who have you got there, what's underneath your seat, Hey, what's that dead body in the trunk.

PAT: I hate it -- they ask me that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Basil, shouldn't we Basil, Basil

BASIL MARCEAUX: Why don't they just take a minute and go over to the judge and get a warrant and assume they have enough evidence first?

STU: Exactly.

GLENN: I agree with that, but

BASIL MARCEAUX: kick me in the head.

GLENN: I agree with that, but if he can see the dead body in your trunk, he doesn't need the search warrant, does he?

STU: He won't see if there's no traffic stop

BASIL MARCEAUX: It's the way you interpret our Constitution. The Constitution says if you you have to have look through my window or through my keyhole in my trunk bed, you have to have a warrant to go through my papers

STU: Thank you. See, Glenn?

GLENN: If somebody says what about that dead body in your trunk, isn't that something maybe if a cop knows there's a dead body, I don't want him opening up your trunk untorn, because if you have a dead body in there, it might be a good thing, but I don't want a cop to be opening up your trunk without a warrant, et cetera, and they can't do that. You're right on that, but, I mean, if he says to you while you're sitting in the car, what's up with the dead body in your trunk and there is a dead body in the trunk

BASIL MARCEAUX: Well, I just have to say to him I would have to say to him, you can't look through my keyhole or my window

STU: Yep. I agree with you on that.

GLENN: Bingo.

PAT: It's like Melissa Ethridge says, come through my window.

Glenn: Where does the badge come in?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Back to the badge. I found the emancipation proclamation I'm kind of tired right now emancipation proclamation that says the United States government and the military and the Navy to maintain and recognize such person to keep people free from slavery and no act should stop them. And we all know if I'm 4th Recon marine, the best soldier in the world, everybody knows I maintain for life and my oath is for life to protect and defend, but I have no power. I should be able to arrest people who break the Constitution. This was my oath. So, I went looking for the law to see if a marine can arrest Constitutional violators and I came upon (inaudible) 39th Congress (Inaudible) Page 38, 41, and 42. That's the same law that gave African Americans four eighths of a mule.

GLENN: So, you made the badge. What does the badge say?

BASIL MARCEAUX: It says okay. On the third prong it says if you're an Army or Navy civilian, you are a great man. You're immune from all crimes, including murder. You're above civil law. You're protected by the military. You can go into any court in the land and say, Hey, Judge, you're under arrest for breaking the Constitution and when I rule, there is no appeal for you and you should be scared of me because if you if you don't get off the Bench when I tell you, I have to treat you like a bank robber. That's why we printed it in our

PAT: That seems to be a lot of power, Basil

STU: Yeah, it is.

BASIL MARCEAUX: But (inaudible) it says that there is when this draw is apprehended by the citizens of the future, the outcry will be just as powerful as it was when the now dominant party invaded our country and ordered republic restored in the future by a great man going to the ballot box

STU: This goes along with Basil's policies.

PAT: Very small writing.

STU: And he will bring larger badges to Tennessee, if you just elect Basil Marceaux.

Glenn: Good luck today.

BASIL MARCEAUX: Thank you.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.

These days, it seems like everything is about politics, and comedy has been one of the biggest targets. Many comedians are walking on eggshells, but stand-up comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jim Breuer isn't one of them.

Breuer joined Glenn on the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about why he’d rather be funny than fearful and what inspired his hilarious comedy special, “Somebody Had to Say It," which has garnered almost 1.5 million views as of this writing.

Breuer made it clear that he does not consider himself to be political. "I'm not. I'm 100% not [political]," he told Glenn, before explaining how people started calling him political when he dared to ask questions about a certain shot that we're not allowed to mention, let alone question.

"When did medicine become political?" Breuer asked.

"What kind of price have you paid for being called political?" Glenn asked Breuer.

"To be dead honest with you, once COVID really kicked in, and ... once you realize we're not going to be here, that we're on borrowed time, and I do have God in my life ... you come to terms with reality on a deeper level. And when COVID kicked in, I said, 'You know what? All bets are off.' I already knew I wasn't in control. But now, not only am I not in control from the natural order of life, but now the puppet masters ... are in control," Breuer answered.

"It made me realize I don't have time to worry about what people think of me. I know where I'm at in life. I know where I'm at spiritually. I know where I'm at with my family," he added.

"That's tremendous power," Glenn said. "But it spooks the hell out of people."

"But it shouldn't!" Breuer exclaimed. "I'm excited that other people get this ... but they're stuck. We ain't got time for stuck. To me, this is the time of, 'You gotta rise.' For years and years and years, you allow fear to control your life. Fear of dying. Fear I might get sick ... everything's based out of fear. It's time for the fearless."

Breuer also revealed his secret for dealing with tough times, and he’s seen his share. But he also said he's seen miracles, including the incredible (and hilariously told) story of how he found faith, how God saved his marriage, and why one family friend was convinced his wife belonged to a cult.
